South America walking & trekking tours

Some adventures are simply better in hiking boots

There’s a special bond that develops between a trekker and their boots. It starts the moment you take them out of the box and continues long after you lace them up for that final day on the track. Whether you’re following the well-worn paths to Machu Picchu or discovering new twists and turns along Colombia’s Cocora Valley, each step imprints another memory on your sole. By the time you’ve finished the trek your boots will have more stories to tell than a porter on the Inca Trail. Let your feet do the exploring as you take in indigenous cultures and soaring scenery of South America.

We had an incredible time! We did the train option and really enjoyed seeing the different archeological sites around Cusco. Machu Picchu was amazing. Jackeline and Carmen were fantastic guides! So knowledgeable, organized, and kind.

Inca Trail Express

Breda · Traveled May 2024
A hugely challenging but rewarding tour. The 12 days manages to cover a large amount of the cultural highlights of Peru. Word of warning though, a high level of fitness is required for the Inca and Quarry trail, the quick ascent to high altitude is very difficult to manage along with steep hill climbs and descents

Sacred Land of the Incas

What a fantastic adventure! Physically challenging and mentally stimulating. It's also fantastic to learn about the broader impact that the Intrepid tours have on uplifting local communities through the activities scheduled. The homestay was a real highlight for me.
